The 4Cs of Diamonds

When shopping for diamonds, understanding the 4Cs — Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat — is essential. These characteristics determine a diamond's quality and value.


The cut of a diamond determines how well it reflects light, contributing to its sparkle and brilliance. A well-cut diamond will appear more luminous and visually appealing, whereas a poorly cut diamond might look dull.

Diamond color grading ranges from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow or brown). Colorless diamonds are the most prized for their ability to reflect light without color interference.


Clarity refers to the absence of inclusions and blemishes. The scale ranges from Flawless (FL) to Included (I), with clearer diamonds being more valuable due to their rarity and beauty.


Carat refers to a diamond's weight. Higher carat diamonds are rarer and thus typically more expensive, though the price also depends heavily on the other three Cs.

The 4Cs are a crucial guide for evaluating diamond quality. By understanding these characteristics, buyers can make informed decisions and select a diamond that best fits their preferences and budget.
